Terästarvike Oy is committed to long-term sustainability in its operations and acquisitions. Their new warehouse was built to be energy-saving.

Terästarvike Oy was faced with the need to construct a new warehouse when its previous warehouse became hopelessly small. Ruukki life energy panels were chosen for the façade.

Using of energy panels in walls reduces heating and cooling requirements and also lowers carbon dioxide emissions.

Due to the airtightness of the warehouse, Terästarvike Oy is able to save about 15% in heating costs compared to the minimum requirements of the Finnish building regulations.

The installation personnel did a good job installing the energy panels and keeping to the set schedule. Ruukki representatives visited the site regularly to check that everything was proceeding according to expectations.

“Even though the warehouse has direct electric heating, the electricity bills remain moderate, as no heat goes to waste. The airtight solution was a smart choice, especially when it wasn’t much more expensive than normal constructions. We focus on sustainable development, a sustainable human resources policy and sustainable customer and supplier relationships. The energy-saving solution reflects our approach to sustainable development,” says managing director Tuomas Heiman from Terästarvike.
